Two things I didn’t know about Texas

And I learned both of them thanks to the latest Texas teacher rapist. Sort of rapist. If we can take cBS reporting as factual. Big if, even with Dan Rather gone.

She’s no rapist under the law that is the first thing I didn’t know about Texas: That age 17 is the age of consent. Seventeen year olds are not jail bait. Unless…

Unless the law that is the second thing I didn’t know about Texas applies: It is illegal for teachers to have sex with students. Pretty cool. If true.

  1. Section 21.12 Improper relationship between educator and student. Felony second degree. Affirmative defense, actor not more than three years older and the relationship began before actor’s employment at the school.

  2. Thanks, Les. Felony, eh? Whoo-hoo. (I deleted the comments on the wrong post.).
